Night Letter

"Night Letter"

Here she is. I'm going to just say it.
I'm thrilled with her.
Sorry about the glare, I'm not patient enough to wait until tomorrow to take a picture.
I didn't take any more pictures between the last one in the last post and this finished one.
Well anyway, you can see where I started and where I finished and all the rawness in between.
Can I also say, I love using napkins.
I have enjoyed hearing from all of you who stopped by to watch and hear and listen and see.
Your comments mean the world to me.
We are adjourned.
Thank you,

  13. Sharon,

    I love this piece and it was great seeing it in progress. Am I correct that it is the dress that is a napkin? Are the poppies painted, a transfer or a napkin? and the butterfly did you paint that or is it a transfer? Sorry for all the questions but I am curious how things are done.


  14. This portrait is fantastic! I love the poppies too. Too bad we have laser printers at home now...
    What's the reference to napkins?

  15. I would love to hear "how" you do the napkin thing. I remember reading about it once before, but I don't remember the how to. SO if you would like to share just drop me an email when you have a minute. Thanks so much. Love the striped socks!
